Mao?? Mao??? Where are you???

Postby QuickChick » Tue May 18, 2010 8:28 pm

I'm hoping we have a new member soon... come out come out wherever you are...

A lot of you know her already, and those who don't will soon love her...

She's a great runner and a huge nerd. :lol:

Welcome from another chem nerd. :) (chemistry ph.d. here but I don't really use it anymore)

I still don't understand who Mao is, though. :)

Is this the famous Mel that's Lisa's best friend from Miss?

Mel has a lot of Chinese lab colleagues, many of whom can't say Mel. They say Mao. She thinks it's pretty funny, so a lot of people actually call her Mao!

And yes, this is the famous Melissa! :)

It must be the "L" sound. My daughter had a Chinese piano teacher for 9 years and still couldn't pronounce her name correctly. Kaytlyn-s/b KATE-LYNN (is how you say it), piano teacher said Kaywinn. :lol:

Does Mel really exist? I had some time on my hand and did some investigating. Mel is a runner. Must have done Sporting Life 10k. Searched for Melissa within Lisa's age group. Narrow down to someone in Lisa's pace. Came up with a bib# and checked the race photos. What a SURPRISE. There's 4 photos of QuickChick.

:lol: What??
Maybe because "Melissa" has l, i, s and a in it?
That's weird. She didn't run Sporting Life. She ran Grimsby in March and she ran Mississauga, but there aren't any pics from Missy that I saw. I could always post my bridal party pics... haha!

They're already posted here somewhere. Grand Canyon too. Hi Mel.

One fine day
This blackbird's mute gonna sing again

So all you sinners come out
And all you drunkards crawl out
Come into the light of one fine day

I guess if that's not her. Then this person would not mind me posting the photos.
